Lois Lenski Covey Foundation, Inc.
Lois Lenski, the 1946 Newbery medalist for Strawberry Girl, had a life-long concern that all children have access to good books. In pursuit of this goal, she established a foundation to provide grants to public and school libraries serving disadvantaged populations. The Lois Lenski Covey Foundation, Inc., annually awards grants of $500 to $5,000 to libraries with real need and limited book budgets. Successful applications have proposed purchases to update their collections generally or to expand their holdings in specific areas. A 2-page grant application is available from the Lois Lenski Covey Foundation, Inc., Attn: Joel D. Sharrow, Moses & Singer, LLP, The Chrysler Building, 405 Lexington Avenue, New York, NY, 10174-1299, or contact the WLA office and one can be faxed to you.
